Class Levels

Our Dance and Theatre classes are currently divided into 3 levels. Each level is distinguished primarily by the age of the dancers, and secondarily by their technique and ability. We defer to the wisdom of our teachers when a level change for a student is required.

Level 1: Beginning (Ages 6-9)

Level 2 Beginning/Intermediate Level (Ages 10-12)

Level 3: Intermediate/Advanced (Ages 13+)

We also offer a Mommy and Me class for ages 6mo-18mo, Wiggles and Wonder class for ages 3-5, and an Adult Hip Hop/Jazz combo class for ages 13 and up.


Registration for the 2019-2020 season is now open!

Mommy and Me

Mommy and me class is a class for parents and their children to explore what it means to move together, and create music together. These classes are ideal for parents who are looking to spend more creative time with their children, between the ages of 6 months and 18 months.

Wiggles and Wonder

Wiggles and Wonder is a creative movement and rhythm class, specifically designed for students between the ages of 3-5 years old. This class focuses on creativity, and developing large motor skills that create the base of focus needed to move onto technique-based classes.

Dress Code: Female students are required to wear a leotard with pink tights, and pink ballet shoes. Male students are required to wear a t-shirt, black pants or shorts, and black ballet shoes.

Ballet

Our ballet classes use classical technique to build the graceful foundation of a great dancer. Each class is complete with barre work and center work. We have 4 levels of technique class. We ask that Level 3 students take 2 classes a week, and Advanced Level students take 3 classes a week. 

Dress Code: Female students are required to wear a black leotard, pink tights, and pink ballet shoes. Male students are required to wear a white t-shirt, black shorts, and black ballet shoes.

Jazz classes are a fun mix of technique and choreography. Jazz specifically challenges flexibility, strength, and choreography memorization. We have 3 levels of jazz class. 

Dress Code: Female students are required to wear a black leotard, black jazz pants, and tan jazz shoes.Male students are required to wear a white t-shirt, black shorts, and tan jazz shoes.

Tap

Our Tap classes provide an environment where dance can create its own music. Tap was created through the need for rhythm, and that is what we emphasize. We currently offer 2 levels of Tap. 

Dress Code: Though uniform is relaxed, students are encouraged to wear comfortable, baggier clothing. Students are required to wear black tap shoes.

Hip Hop

Hip Hop class is a place for a student to explore beats and rhythm at a different level. It’s a high energy form of dance, that teaches students to transition quickly between sharp and smooth movements. We currently offer 2 levels of Hip Hop.

Contemporary

Contemporary dance explores the principles of Jazz and Ballet styles, mixing them all in one. Focusing on the impetus of movement, students will gain a better sense of exploring new kinds of movement that come with a more advanced type of dance style. Currently offered for levels 2 and 3.

Dress Code: Female Students are required to wear a black leotard, black jazz pants, and either socks or bare feet. Male students are required to wear a white t-shirt, black pants or shorts, and either socks or bare feet.

Christian Dance

Christian Dance is a unique class offered at Thrive Arts Academy. Based off of a lyrical style, Christian Dance is a time of experiential worship. Students are encouraged to bring their Bibles, and learn what it means to worship God through the gift of dance. Psalm 150:4 says that we should “praise His name with dancing”, and that is what we intend to do! 

Dress Code: Female students are required to wear a black leotard, pink tights, and pink ballet shoes. Male students are required to wear a white t-shirt, black shorts, and black ballet shoes.

Acting

Our acting classes are taught in a way that goes over many of the bases of general stage acting, while also challenging those who have already been on the stage. Students will learn what is means to embody a character in front of an audience, analyze scripts, as well as dabble in improvisation. 

Dress Code: Students are encouraged to wear clothing that is comfortable to move in, as many acting exercises require freedom of movement. It is preferred for female students to come to class in pants, not a dress or skirt. No spaghetti straps or short-shorts are allowed.


tuition

Our tuition is based off of the number of hours taken per family, not per student. If you have multiple students in your family, our monthly tuition is charged based off of the cumulation of all hours by students in a single family. If you are taking a 45 minute class added to the rest of your tuition, you will round down to the nearest half hour mark.
